Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) members will gather at the Willard InterContinental Hotel in Washington, D.C., from June 10–14 at Committee Week 2012 to set the association agenda for the upcoming fiscal year.
According to a report in RVIA Today, RVIA standing committees, the Go RVing Coalition and the RV Service Training Council will meet June 10–12 to develop recommendations for consideration by the RVIA Executive Committee on June 13. The week-long event concludes with the Board of Directors meeting on June 14 to review the recommendations of the Executive Committee.
“Committee Week is one of the most important dates on the association calendar. The work done there sets the course of the association for the coming year and beyond,” said RVIA President Richard Coon. “We are very appreciative to have committee members who volunteer their valuable time to take part in this event and share their business expertise in developing plans and program proposals.”
In addition to the full slate of committee meetings, other popular events taking place during Committee Week include:
• Joint Committee Luncheons – Committee members will gather for these luncheons on June 11 to hear economist Richard Curtin discuss current market conditions and on June 12 for a discussion on the pending Supreme Court decisions on health care reform.
• Monday Evening Reception – Following Monday’s meetings, Committee Week participants will gather in the Presidents Gallery at Madame Tussauds. The Presidents Gallery is a brand new $2 million exhibit that displays every U.S. president in an exciting educational and interactive environment.
• Capitol Hill Advocacy Day – RVIA members will descend on Capitol Hill for Advocacy Day on June 13 to promote important industry issues.
The historic Willard InterContinental Hotel is once again the host for Committee Week. It is located just two blocks from the White House in the heart of the Washington, D.C., business district.
